Zug In "Backstage Politics": When big decisions are made, Iowa's governors often enlist confidential advisers. Political speculation of the week is over conference held by Gov. N. G. Kraschel with Gardner (Mike) Cowles, Jr.. of the Des Moines publishing family, when gubernatorial decisions on Newton strike developments were in the making. Observers wonder whether Cowles has assumed or will assume a like relationship to the Kraschel administration which Will Riley. prominent Des Moines democrat and attorney, held with the Herring administration. Riley was chiof confidential nd- vise,r of former Gov. Clyde L. Herring, but has been out of active politics since fcofore 1936, except foi a little help to the Gillette cause ir> the recent pr'mary. Republicans have considered the Cowles family, Gardner, St., and sons. John and Gardner. Jr., as nominally republican, but there were no G. O. P. expressions of surprise over the attendance of Gardner, Jr., at the closed Kraschel conference last Wednesday. They indicated they knew of "some" Kra«chel- Cowles relationship before the press was getting wind of It First press accounts followed the Wednesday conference, after which Cowles acted as spokesman for the governor, releasing his orders and statements. A state official who would not be quoted by name had a new s^nt on Wallace-for-president trial balloons this week. He said the Wallace peo pie, if they have presidential nomination hopes for the Des Moines man, must keep Iowa J democratic this fall in order to hWve the necessary home-state power in a 1940 democratic convention. •/•/n MELLOTONE WALLS callers at the Jim Doocys.
